Thu, 29 Apr 2021 15:11:45 CDT

Dr. Kim Anderson Says this has been a Good  Week For Higher Grain Prices Oklahoma State University Extension Grains Market Analyst Dr. Kim Anderson talks about what is going on in the Wheat Markets weekly on SUNUP.

This week Dr. Anderson says grain prices just keep going up, "You look at the last week you've had wheat prices go up about 75 cents. Cash Oklahoma prices from around $6.25t to almost $7. Corn prices from about $5.20 to $5.50, somewhere in the vicinity. The sorghum from $6.00 to $6.30, Soybeans from $12.40 to $12.75. Cotton from $84.41 to $87.02, all the commodities are just going up big time"

Anderson said there is some rumblings in the market that prices are as high as they should be, "You know that's what the analysts are saying, 'how high can these prices go?' and some of them say that if you look at the supply and demand situation, they're as high as they should be. But when the market gets moving, when the momentum gets there, you just don't know how high they're going. Plus, there's a lot of a lot of things going on in the market right now."
